the great delgado migration to the states will take place november 2006 or thereabouts. a year later than hoped. i have been going on and on about how terrible it is to subject myself and my family to this limbo of being not really here anymore in zamboanga but neither being really in stamford yet.
ate evelyn, my cousin's wife who is our agent, said that maita and i will be flying out late october, early november of this year, but not outside the country but only to manila for a video conference interview with the stamford hospital system, together with their other applicants. maita insists that our absolutely no-fail method of acing tests (interviews included) will shoot us to the top 2 positions. like our dad, if only 50% will be accepted, we'll belong to the upper 50% percentile. if only 20%, then we'd be there too. if only 1%, that would be the two of us.
once they think we're cute, they'll give us a written job offer, which, if we will sign, will catalyze the petition process with the US Immigration Services. a process which takes 9 to 12 months. thus the november 2006 leaving date.
which brings me back to the question, should i or should i not accept the offer to be chair of the mass communications department?
